MHA 2022 Class Profile

Will I be able to work during my time in the program?

Our master’s programs require a significant time commitment and, especially at the beginning, students should be careful in allocating enough time to do well in their courses. However, many students work full- or part-time during their program. Throughout the program, students should work closely with their academic advisor to determine a program of study that will meet student needs and program expectations.

Is work experience required for admission?

The MHA program strongly suggests that applicants have experience in the healthcare administration industry, as this is a factor for consideration. Strong leadership experience, outside of healthcare, is also a factor for consideration. The average work experience for admitted students is 2 years of healthcare experience and 1 year of supervisory/management experience.

Applicants to the PMHA program should have either:

  • 5+ years of (non-clinical) full-time healthcare work experience and 3+ years of supervisory/managerial work experience,
    or
  • 5+ years of professional clinical work experience.

And those interested in the MHAO program must be working in a qualifying healthcare-specific job that meets the experiential learning requirements of the MHA program and also must have the following work experience at minimum before matriculating:

  • 5+ years of full-time healthcare work experience and 3+ years of supervisory/managerial experience*
    or
  • 5+ years of professional clinical work experience **

*An applicant’s supervisory/managerial experience can be from any setting but must have supervised at least 2 or more individuals who directly report to them.
** Professional clinical work experience includes positions that provide direct patient care to them, such as a physician, nurse, or other medical providers.
